Kramerica Sports weekly player rankings are based on Yahoo Sports standard scoring settings.
Positional ranks are based on numerous factors, including opposing defense, historical data, player health, gut feelings, and other classified variables.
Play of the Week- Matt Ryan is the top rated quarterback for the second consecutive week. The Raiders have given up the 6th most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, and the Falcons are almost unbeatable at home.
Red Flag Alert- The Cardinals proved that Tom Brady and the Patriots can be beat with a tough front seven that puts consistent pressure on the quarterback. Seattle has that ability, and they play teams tough at home.
Upside Play - Andrew Luck is playing well beyond his years and is on the verge of becoming a viable fantasy option. Look for him to have a solid game against a depleted Jets defense.

An Oakland Raiders training camp full of optimism and the promise of ball-hawking defensive backs giving the ball back to the offense has given way to a drought. With the starting cornerbacks out due to injury and an anemic pass rush, the makeshift secondary of the Raiders has yet to intercept its first pass through four games. “I wouldn’t have believed it,” cornerback...
